romney and paul ryan suggest increase military funding by $2 trillion over the next decade. i support a strong defense. but we need to retrench rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. we have too many soldiers, too many troopers scattered around the world. our presence needs to be decreased around the world, not increased, and the united states should stop trying to be the overseer of the world. that will save us billions and billions of dollars. [applause] >> all right. governor johnson. >> we need to provide ourselves with a strong national defense. the operative word here is defense, not offense and not nation building.

substantive differences between their philosophies will they be in policy decisions? > guest: romney has been so much of a cipher. he has limited himself to saying, the criticizing the obama, and that criticism as not to the civic, that obama should be tougher. when he gets down to talking about what he would do differently, so far to differ does have been minimal. you can look at syria where romney has said he would be tougher. what would he do differently? maybe getting a few more high- powered arms to the rebels, but that is about a everything obama has done already, the challenge for romney will be to move beyond mere criticism -- tonight will be to move beyond mere criticism of the president and come up with a positive agenda and specific agenda of what he would do differently. the challenge for obama would be something different. obama came into office four dramatic terms about how his foreign policy was going to be different from his predecessor. he was going to change the overall tone. he was going to reset relationships with russia. what has happened instead is that he has become a m

? >> tonight president obama and mitt romney will be speaking. it's become a must be there event for presidential candidates and it's a chance for them to come together in a nonconfrontational way, they do give humorous speeches and poke fun at each other and themselves and it's supposed to be a break from the campaign trail and bashing each oofment and we're just two days out from one debate and another one in florida and it's supposed to be a chance to show a little bit of a day taunt i guess. host: so each of the men will speak tonight? guest: yes. each of the candidates will give a speech maybe poking some fun at their opponents but also honor the makery of al smith who was a four-term governor of new york but as a candidate for president who was heavily criticized and attacked basically for his catholic faith. host: and al smith was one of our contenders as part of our series that we did on c-span looking at those who ran for the white house, lost but changed political history. if our viewers are interested in going into the archives to learn more about al smith. but tonight
to get rid of that. the concern is that mr. parker supports the romney-ryan budget. he supports their approach to entitlements. that would voucher eyes medicare and cost your grandmother $6,400 per year. >> i never said i supported the budget. let's get back to the health care -- i agree with certain aspects -- that we should be able to purchase insurance for our children up to the age of 26 and we needed now because these kids do not have jobs. we must also address pre- existing conditions. in order to drive down those costs, we must be able to purchase insurance across state lines. doctors practice defensive medicine. we had to pay for these tests and we told the doctor that you need certain tests and i said i have to pay for this and he told us which ones we don't need. he was afraid he would be suited he did not prescribe them. >> is there any greater example for why the constitution and the federal government are completely at odds with one another? the constitution is supposed to limit the federal government. there's nothing in the constitution about health care or permitt
this in the romney 47% comments. the american dream is dying because people have demanded entitlement programs that have sapped the will to work. basically, pushing away the latter. but we do not want that latter -- pushing away the ladder. we do not want the ladder. >> i think that goes to the concept that you brought forth, which is proportionality. essentially, that actions and consequences should be correlated so that if you make good decisions and work hard, you are rewarded. if you make bad decisions and you do not work as hard, you are not rewarded. that for the two-party -- for the tea party is the bad guy. with the financial crisis, the bailout for banks, a bailout for hard, you are mortgage companies, allf these things infringed on this underlying moral foundation of proportionality, which is central to their idea of the american dream. they think that proportionality is absolutely essential for people to have the freedom to try. with a tarp especially in the financial crisis, that was the enemy. >> that gentleman next. and then jim harper. >> i am with the madison coalition. i saw i
. i will come to a conclusion, but i want to talk briefly about obama and romney. obama has a reputation as a reader. there is one time he was asked about reading a book, but he said, i only have time to floss my teeth and watch tv sports. homeland," "theorado la sopranos." he mentioned snooki a couple of times. it was suggested that obama's approach -- it does not necessarily suggest that obama read the book, but he said obama might have taken the idea that was in the air to account. there has been this trend of people giving obama jewish books. benjamin netanyahu started it by giving him a but. peter gave him a book. i wonder what would happen if we had a jewish president. but that is what we do. we give jewish books to our president even if they are not jewish. mitt romney is looking to get a better presidents of the jewish vote then became did. he is aggressively -- than mccain did. i was on a phone call with governor romney. he was talking to 3000 jewish leaders on thursday night. he has read a number of books related to isreal. it is a really important book in terms of
president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to
met romney campaigning with jeb bush at a rally in jacksonville florida live at 8:00 eastern on c-span. >> indiana has made incredible progress over the last eight years. we balanced budgets, become the fiscal and the of the country and now have the largest budget surplus we have ever had. it will make a possible for us to strengthen our budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for every resident. use every paper things in indiana. when you are speaker of the house, for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. came in, indiaaniels was $700 million in debt and a deficit of $700 million. i would like to know, from my colleagues on stage, how we will mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana. >> if you spent the last 12 years in india and not congress you would know that our budget needs to be balanced. i have a balanced bipartisan a balanced budget. and the things you talked about were supported by david long, and lieutenant governor. find laughable that united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but
romney -- coupes -- who paid significantly lower tax then it an mitt romney does and most of us to. he says you cannot raise taxes on many millionaires were millionaires. the worst part is, i know the oil industry is your friend, but you can't close tax loopholes for the oil industry, or these companies that outsource jobs. you are be holden, not that your chances of going to the senate are that high, but you are be holden to so many interest groups before you even -- before the election, even. all of these people who want to keep washington going the way that it is. >> when we started this campaign, our chances of going to washington were relatively slim and we were down 17 points. the recent poll had a sorry but up one. . -- had us up one point. one reason is because there is such a mix of people who are sick of the washington speak, to live by one set of rules. i will live by the same rules that all of you have to live by. putting food on the table for your families every day. >> the front page of this morning's wall street journal had a chief executives -- had 80 chief executives,
to defeat mitt romney and paul ryan and reelect the president. and tammy baldwin will be a stalwart champion for social security. >> piercing tommy thompson's campaign is about $1.30 billion in cash. is that a concern to you? as far as the numbers are concerned? >> there's been a lot of spending in this campaign. i do not a scared or deterred by how much money the republicans have. tommy thompson, after you left wisconsin went off to serve in the george w. bush's cabinet. but one of the reasons i think his campaign has so much money, and you see so much outside spending is that he cut this deal on a medicare part d where he made it so that the government cannot negotiate with the prescription drug companies were lower drug prices. i think this is the ultimate payback for tommy, giving such a great giveaway to the prescription drug companies. tommy thompson is not the same guy that people remember from his heyday in 1980's. that may be what is special interest friends are spending money as a reward for tommy for making himself so much wealthier. host: nate, missouri, go ahead. caller: romney
to vote for romney? maybe there are. host: that question is being asked in the polls. who would you vote for? this is among likely voters. not much movement there. guest: right. there are many ways to measure voter intent. people in washington are looking at what is going on in the 12 or 6 or two or one battleground states and the numbers have moved in a lot of those states. host: could you put yourself in the mind of david axelrod? what advice would you give president obama? guest: i have three teenagers. do not over correct. they're learning to drive. my advice to them is what i would tell the president. don't over correct. you hit a soft shoulder. it might lead you to become too wildly aggressive in the second debate. thedvice is if you're president of the united states. there is a dignity attached to that office. do not squander it. host: we're talking with tucker carlson, editor in chief of the "daily caller." guest: i did not write that description. we have the majority on our material reported by our staff. we practice traditional journalism. asked unpleasant questions to people i
complex where president obama and mitt romney will be meeting tomorrow for their next debate. this is what they call spin alley. members of the media speak with a party spokesman after the debate to get their take and their spin on how other candidates did. and the gillespie and david -- ed gillespie and david axelrod gave teh spin after the last debate and we may see them again. >> we invite you to watch and engage with c-span as they meet for their second debate, the life preview tomorrow when 7 and at 9:00, the chief political correspondent and cnn will moderate, and 90-minute town hall with questions from undecided voters. after the debate we will take your calls, emails, and the tweets. while we wait for the start of the ohio senate debate, your phone calls on what you need to see from the presidential candidates to make your decision from this morning's "washington journal." host: this new poll says nearly two-thirds of likely voters say they do not need any more information between election day and one in eight is undecided or they say there is a chance they could change their vote.
mitt romney brought up maybe we could cut corporation for public broadcast spending. in the last week, i see these ads where he is got to cut big bird, elmo, and that is one cut in a tiny program. we could live without the subsidies. think about if you could try to come up with a laundry list of programs that could be eliminated. that would be a much more efficient thing to do, and we agree it would be much more efficient to cut medicare and social security and these big entitlement programs rather than some of these smaller programs. they will not do it. the republicans have made a strategic mistake politically in saying we do not want to do the subsidies. the defense sequester, because in my opinion the only way you're going to drag democrats who do not want to cut the budget, the only way you will get to the table is you have to do these sequester cuts, year after year, until democrats say we cannot take any more, we will have to make sure warren buffett does not get medicare or we will raise the and retirement age. i would make the case that one of the benefits is you keep squeezi
romney being there. there is a long explanation for why he decided to invite them. he said, first of all, this is about the memory of al smith. he was somebody who, even though he had strongly held personal opinions about what he thought was right and wrong, he did not demonize the people who saw differently. and in general, it is better to engage people that have different views, rather than to shut them out, ignore them or turn your back. it is a way of fostering communication whether then region rather than emphasizing differences. host: how much money are they expected to raise? guest: $5 million to charities that benefit children. host: thank you for your time this morning. >> we will have live coverage of the al smith foundation dinner tonight. surely, we will go live to the pentagon from -- with remarks from leon panetta. until then, a look at the senate race in connecticut between congressman christopher merc -- christopher murphy and republican linda mcmahon. democratic congressman christopher murphy and the republicans were off in a debate number 3. what is this race looking li

are more dangerous. she said repeatedly she would be open to paul ryan and matt romney's plans. privatizing medicare to be an absolute disaster for seniors across this state because of that the entire medicare system. the privatization would cost seniors $6000 more i need you to take a breath now. our next question is from dennis house and it's going to go to congressman murphy. >> a democratic controlled legislature and the congressional delegation made up of all democrats at the exception of joe lieberman. at the? had come in this one-party rule would continue. why do you believe complete control by one party is good for connecticut? murphy: i watched with the republican party has become in washington. we've had a tradition of republicans that were different from what we see. unfortunately the republican party has really become radicalized. it has become a shadow of what it once was and i don't think they have connecticut's interests at heart. the republican party that seeks to take control of the united states senate would eradicate a woman's right to choose where she could do with her o
